Then when you attempt the target offense, it merges into attempt. If you or your partner successfully complete the target offense, you will both be charged with that target offense either directly or under accomplice liability.
Thanks! That definitely helps. Could you explain the difference between Pinkerton and Luparello liability? I don't get how they both fit together, since it seems like Pinkerton expands conspiracy liability to make people accomplices for their co-conspirators crimes, while Luparello makes you liable for more of your accomplices actions. I guess its just that Luparello seems redundant. Is it basically that Pinkerton has a broader scope, so some places reject that and only use Luparello? Or am I way off?

Yeah, I got that you can always be charged with everything, it was just the conviction thing I was unsure of.
